Americans are beginning to worry about a Bernie Sanders presidency after the Vermont Senator announced his cabinet would consist of the hyenas from The Lion King.
Naturally, GOP critics have been quick to point out the problem with dozens of carnivorous dogs running the executive branch.
As criticism mounted, Sanders felt the pressure to clarify his decision. With each arm extended out and his hands flapping like birds, he addressed members of the press at a New Hampshire campaign stop.
“Listen, are the hyenas an unconventional choice?” Bernie asked rhetorically. “Yes. But we’re running an unconventional campaign. And let’s be frank, my policies are going to need some muscle.”
“But aren’t these the same hyenas that helped bring down the Pride Land under the Scar administration?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked the Senator.
“THAT WASN’T THE REAL SCAR ADMINISTRATION!!” Sanders screamed back. “THE TRUE SCAR ADMINISTRATION HAS NEVER BEEN TRIED!”
Should Sanders usher in the infamous pack of hyenas, it would mark the first time a wild scavenger was on White House staff since Jay Carney.
